    NEW YORK – Shag Bag got an early laugh during U.S. Open week.

  • The United States Open returns to Bethpage Black for its 109th edition. And as senior writer Rex Hoggard says, so, too, do the three principal characters from seven years ago.

  • Before daybreak last Wednesday in a nondescript office somewhere in the bowels of the U.S. Golf Associations temporary command center near Bethpage Black Mike Davis and a member of his staff locked themselves in with a stack of 3-by-5 note cards and had fun. That is to say they created a draft grouping sheet for Rounds 1 and 2 for this weeks U.S. Open.

  • Redemption thy name is 4-iron.

  • In hindsight, Zach Johnson’s birdie blitz, which featured eight birdies in an 11-hole stretch, on Friday at Quail Hollow Club should come as no surprise.

  • Tiger Woods lost the Masters, a fact he is probably becoming tired of being reminded. After a few days cooling off in central Florida he seemed properly vented and ready to continue conquering at Quail Hollow on Thursday.

  • A friend of Michael Allen’s ran into the newly minted Senior PGA champion last week and asked the fresh-faced 50-year-old what his playing plans were going forward?

  • Midway through his second round last week at Colonial Country Club Chad Campbell was trying to swipe his ball from an awkward lie in a bunker when he felt something snap in his left calf.

  • Funny how a few weeks can change one’s perspective. Not more than a fortnight back the mood around tournament HQ at the St. Jude Classic was something less than festive.

  • DUBLIN, Ohio – Caught up with U.S. Golf Association set-up man Mike Davis on Tuesday fresh from his final scouting trip to Bethpage Black.
